george w. bush at this point. would i say that his quiver of solutions is sparse. raising taxes on rich people. that is the extent of his plan for righting the economy. we just did that in january and it didn't work. bill: doug, your turn. >> needless to say i don't share the view. first i think there is plenty of blame to go around and tucker, with all derao respect the american people still blame george w. bush as much as they blame president obama. part of the reason for that is republicans in congress are arguably more discredited than an administration that i have a lost problems with. the president stablize the economy. he did for the first time propose ad grand bargain. my take is different from both sides. we have to work together this is silly we're fighting. tucker, rush, let's get together to try to have a grand bargain to solve american problems, not democratic or republican problems. bill: seems like we went down that road. got nowhere with it. rush limbaugh has a theory why the president governs the way he does. the theory can be heard right now. limbaugh. >> theory is tha
feared nor respected. i'm not saying you go back to the george bush days and have wars that you can't win. but i am saying if president obama makes these statements, we're going to get those people who killed our people in benghazi and then does nothing about it. if president obama says there are real consequences to you, mr. putin, if you keep snowden and don't return him, and then we do nothing about it. if we tell iran there are real consequences coming to you if you continue your nuclear weapons program, and then we do nothing about it. at a certain point, leading from behind those guys stop looking back for orders, and they go their own way, and here we are. bill: you wonder if this extends beyond august. you have september 11th coming up in the first half of the next month and whether or not this stretches into that. kt, let's hope nothing happens. kt mcfarland on what we're seeing today. thank you. patti ann: new reports that a top u.s. diplomat met today with a jailed senior leader of egypt's muslim brotherhood. u.s. deputy secretary of state william burns apparently joining offic

chief of staff to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor with us from his home in austin, texas. you wrote a piece in the wall street journal, i know you've got a white board, too, so i'll get you to explain it. you call it the un affordable careless act. actually, that was a great line by the headline writer, but my piece was about the unintended consequences of the bill. president obama never sold the affordable care act to the american people by saying, look, this is going to create more part-time jobs in the place of full-time jobs, and yet that's one of big consequences of the bill. if you take a look at it, under the affordable care act a full-time worker is defined as somebody who works as 30 hours or more a a week, and if you work 30 hours or more a week, your employer has to provide you with health insurance coverage. now, this encourages a disincentive to employ people over 30 hours. the number of people who are working 30-34 hours a week has dropped 146,500 on average a month. the number of people working 25-29 hours a week has risen 119,000 on average per mont
in the state before the 2008 sweepstakes. we are 23 months earlier than george w. bush's first visit in june of 1999. bill: why is it this early? >> i have a theory. the political system makes a judgment as to when you are going to turn a page on the pathr president in his second term. the sooner i start to turn that page the more that activity ramps up. we have joe biden who will focus on his 2016 hopes. the senator from minnesota is going to make an appearance in the state. i'm thinking the political system is starting to say, president obama, you are in our second term and you are going to become a lame duck and it looks like it will bener than later. president bush's approval ratings in 2005 were slightly above were president obama's are today. but he was engaged in the system and the system was moving. the congress had passed thus far in 2005, a trade agreement with central america, the first energy policy bill in decade, a multi-year highway bill. it was the last time the president and the congress had a multi-year funding bill. bill: you are argue he was active and relevant. >> you me
aide and aid to president george w. bush and republican strategist. welcome here today. this is a tough story. it is a sad story and because the president did input himself into those other cases, leslie, that's why this question is being raised. >> no doubt but it's a story you just reported, martha, regarding world war ii veteran. i think that although it is disgusting anytime somebody loses their life, especially to a crime whether it is the hand of a gun or not which i think is definitely another issue and as we've seen statistically the violence, crime in america is down except among our youth. violent crime is up among our youth and something we have to address. when we lose somebody who is young, it is awful. the reason as you trail yaw made a comment, this is their citizen. the reason the president should make a comment people feel because of trayvon martin, the race card, this is a young man but i do think it is naive and unreal listic to expect the president to comment anytime there is victim of a crime. martha: of course it is. of course it is. >> with we care -- >> i underst

man, former deputy assistant to former president george w. bush. good morning, gentlemen. we have had a number about cases recently which provoked so much discussion about race in this country and this milestone does beg that question, how are we doing on this front? juan, let me start with you. >> well, if you look at it as a matter of history, 50 years, there is no comparison between america of 1963 and america of 2013. martha, i think of it in very personal terms. i think my dad couldn't be working at a major network. i don't think it is possible that, to be publishing books and writing columns in america the way that i am. i think he would be living in segregated neighborhood. i know he was. that's where i grew up. in terms of educational opportunities it would have been far less but i think what you see in the poll i think it is very interesting, 44% of whites said we are not equal, have so much more to go is i think overwhelmingly what you see from the poll people say we still have struggles because of differences in terms of educational opportunities and specific what i would p
